This is breaking news:
With the Vampire accelerator boards out and in mass production, and AROS gaining momentum on m68k, it has been announced that the Apollo/Vampire team will open-source their S-AGA enhanced Amiga-compatible chipset!
This means that other companies can build Vampire/S-AGA compatible hardware.
AROS is already open-source, and running on the Vampire boards. It still needs optimization for the S-AGA chipset.
Yes, it looks like it's finally happening. A new 68k-Amiga.
Totally off-topic, but "amiga", too, in a way... ;-)

Did you know multiple-gold-and-platinum-record-selling artist Calvin Harris not only created Disco, but he created it on an Amiga computer using OctaMED?
The album, released in 2007, was a major success, spawning two top-10 singles in the UK, and was certified gold in the UK in 2008. It has an undeniable Paula-feel to it, but the production quality is flawless, modern, and... groovy!
Show your appreciation and buy the album!

I have an old Microbotics / Paravision M1230XA accelerator board, and it's not working properly. Can you help me debugging it?
For starters, a few screenshots would help: SetXA utility window / running, Early Startup Menu boards listing, "showconfig" output, SysInfo screen with speed test results (each of course with a working M1230XA installed).
I mostly test my board with Kickstart 3.0 - are you aware of any issues regarding KS3.0 and the M1230XA?
(apart from the fact that RAM has to be added "manually" / software-wise)
Not strictly Amiga, but this may come in handy for Amiga users, too:
[GIMONS] has built a SCSI virtual drive from a RaspberryPi board, for his vintage x68000 computer. Via a minimal SCSI interface on the RasPi's GPIO connector it can serve as a harddisc, or pretty much any other SCSI device you could imagine (MO, CDROM, Ethernet, ...).
